Against all odds

by Christoph Plate

Journalists from Sahel meet in Niamey to discuss Media and Terrorism

Mohamed Bazoum, the Minister of Interior opened the conference and underlined the importance of the media in fighting terrorism.

Fäuste, Frust und Fremdenhass in Südafrikas Wahlkampf

by Henning Suhr

Mit dem herannahenden Wahltermin am 8. Mai nehmen Nervosität und Spannung in Südafrikas Wahlkampf zu.

Gleichzeitig offenbaren Aufrufe zu Verbrennungen von Büchern des Journalisten Pieter-Louis Myburgh die Dünnhäutigkeit in Teilen der Regierungspartei African National Congress (ANC), da die Enthüllungen Myburghs die systematische Korruption im ANC anprangern. Zwar deuten Umfragen darauf hin, dass ANC-Präsident Ramaphosa weiterhin regieren wird, doch die allgemeine Unzufriedenheit mit der Regierung und der Frust in breiten Teilen der Wählerschichten sind allgegenwärtig.
